the modern world

My dad is turning 55 today. During his time on this earth he has seen some amazing things. They put a man on the moon. You can carry your phone in your shirt pocket. Your entire record collection can be stored in a match book size device. Thanks to modern pharmaceuticals, the old aren't quite so old anymore. I guess it's true that everything old is new again. Happy Birthday Wayne.

Monster Warm Up

Here is a little fella I did as a warm up this morning. It was fun to do and I think I'll do a few more of these monster types.

Kristen on the loose

It is my niece's 11th birthday today.  She is a great kid with a real strong personality.  It'll be interesting to see what kind of person she will grow into.  Here is one interpretation of what it may look like once she is let loose on the world.  Happy Birthday little one.

Who wants Girl Guide cookies?

It is April and it is time once again for those scrumptious Girl Guide cookies. Not those awful thin mints but the good chocolate and vanilla cookies with the frosting inside. One of my sister-in-law's neighbor's kids is selling the cookies this year and I explained to some of my friends that I have the GGC connection if they wanted any. They wanted to see me as a Girl Guide so here we go... sorry about this folks.

Playing with color

Here is a quick sketch I did today as part of a batch of warm up drawings. I thought that I'd play with the colors a little bit.
